court. a third is obama care where the states refuse to follow the federal policy and sued for the right to do that and won a mixed holding from the supreme court. in the midst of all this, you have a supreme court which is itself very much -- everybody come on up. there are some seats in the front. don't be shy. the supreme court is very much influx. that area is unsettled in a way that it has not been for a very long time. and in the midst of all of that, talk about putting a cat among pigeons, legalize marijuana. and this is more than any of the previous policies, a direct confrontation with federal policy. they did it, moreover by referendum. lopsided votes to the public. now a parameter for our discussion is i think it's going to say that none of our comments are rehearsed. but i think we're all probably going to agree that federal policies as a matter of law is supreme here. i don't think that's in question. what is in question is what is wise for the federal government to do in this situation and what is wise for the states to do because more of them will be considering marijuana

the campaign for a man named barack obama to be the president of the united states, you have this obvious issue which is most guys don't know somebody named barack obama. he doesn't look like a lot of voters. joe biden is kind of quintessentially like next door neighbor material. i thought this clip was interesting in 2008, here's joe biden being that kind of validator for voters on specifically, this issue of gups. take a look. >> i guarantee you, barack obama ain't taking my shotguns. so don't buy that malarkey. don't buy it. they're going to start pedalling that to you. i got two. if he tries to fool with my barretta, he has a problem. i like that little over and under. i'm not bad with it. so, give me a break! >> i think that's joe biden threatened to shoot his running mate. is that the subtext of that quote? that to me was quintessentially the role he's played from a kind of commit cal in terms of the image -- crafting the immamg of barack obama and selling him to voters. >> one i'm thrilled that malarkey has been around that long. it's an important word in our history now. but i think wha
these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'. >>> president obama set to unveil his recommendations for gun violence in america in just about a half hour. the state of new york is already taking the lead. yesterday the governor signed into law sweeping reforms making new york state the first state to response to the sandy hook school shooting with legislation. included in the law, an expansion of the ban on assault rifles, gun magazines will now be limited to seven rounds down from ten. and it includes provisions to keep guns away from the mentally ill. how does the new york law change things? >> it broadens existing reporting obligations. some psychiatrists are saying it's overreaching and could be count productive. the new law requires mental health professionals to report if an individual they're treating is likely to engage in conduct that will cause serious harm to themselves or others. law enforcement could be notified. that person's gun will be taken away. their names would be added ede state database. the psychiatrist says there is already

"the factor" begins right now. >> hi, i am bill o'reilly. thank you for watching us tonight. the talking points memo will be on the media coverage of al gore's al-jazeera deal and that will be in our second segment with bernie gold burg. but our lead story tonight president obama's press conference th
.s. capitol. i barack obama do solemnly swear that i will execute the office of president to the united states faithfully the office of president of the united states faithfully -- >> when chief justice john roberts and administered the oath to barack obama on generate 20 ifill 2009, there was a major problem. he was supposed to say that i will faithfully execute the office as president of the united states. so then barack obama stops, he p1used, smiled as if to say com1 on, this is my big day, you have to get this right. but unfortunately, he didn't get it right. so the very next night in the white house they did it again. this time roberts used notes which he hadn't used the first time and they got it right. >> supreme court's oral argument of the case deciding if police officers have the right to force suspected drunk drivers to give a blood sample without first obtaining a warrant. the case puts the public's interest and highway safety against the privacy rights of individuals and the fourth amendment's against unreasonable search. this is about an hour. >> you will hear arguments first th
the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have sadly been filled by the obama administration and the united states congress and the courts and the majority of the mainstream media and by the american people. that is sadly the truth. when you look at what that means -- what is it mean for the people in guantanamo? the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that have of the prisoners in guantanamo have been cleared for release from that prison by a very sober and responsible group of government officials and lawyers and all the government departments and intelligence agencies in a report that was issued three years ago. as moe put it, these are not people who needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence on the united states and yet they have not been released. united states went to a very high level process of saying to these men that we don't want to will do any more and then did not release them. in about half of these cows, the men were previously cleared for release by a military review
states of america. ladies and gentlemen, president barack obama. >> thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you so much. thank you, everybody, please, please have a seat. good afternoon, everybody. let me begin by thanking our vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisible. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children, and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful to all of you for taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. but we also heard from some unexpected people, in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids, four of them are here today, grant fritz, julia stokes, hina ziha and teja good. they're pretty representative of some of the mess
closer to the $95 a barrel mark. okay. with roughly a month to go until the united states hits its debt limit, president obama's calling on congress to raise the limit above 16.4 trillion dollars asap. republicans say spending cuts may be part of any -- must be part of any increase. who is going to win in this yet another congressional debate? gerri willis here. it's deja vu other than it's value -- valentine's day rather than new year's eve. >> the president was interesting today for a number of reasons, not that he changed his tune on the topics we talked about, but his tone was different, strident, more trying to cower republicans into what he termed the responsible thing. this is what the president had to say in the press conference. >> the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it just allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> well, unfortunately, that authorizes more spending, and the history of these debt limit increase z is that every time we have a debt limit
is out to pull the wool over our eyes, if you will, and mislead us to let obama take away gun rights. >> you said you have had death threats from some of them? >> i received a death threat investigated by three state entity answer the feds. >> it's one thing -- it's bad enough to be grieving the loss of our sister and your family but to go through attacked on-line and having people contact you. what's that like for you? >> i'm not worried about the safety of myself or my family. i'm worried about the individuals. this is behavior that when you reject facts and reiallety and you grasp to this idea that the government is out to get you, it's a slippery slope. what's next? the helicopters are out to get you. they should not have their hands on weapons or have a platform to seek but sho should be seeking mental health evaluation and help. >> they say we are asking questions. we are just asking questions. we don't have the facts. we don't have the facts. we are asking questions. it seems like under that ruse you can ask anything you want. you can say the most heinous things and wash your
legislature is about to pass the first new gun regulations of any state. final vote is set for today. at a white house news conference yesterday president obama talked about gun control and the national debt. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. the president says he wants the gun debate to rise above politics. that's virtually impossible and there are constitutional questions regarding gun control no lawmaker can ignore. for some parts the president's gun violence agenda which he'll discuss with the vice president in a couple of hours the president is looking at executive powers that do not require congressional consent. vice president biden told house democrats there were more than a dozen ways president obama could circumvent congress among the ideas, beefing up federal data collection on criminals with guns and the health care toll of gun violence. >> there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. >> reporter: as parents of the chil
, and later, arizona governor jan brewer delivers her state of the state address. >> there's a new ebook on the market called how the technology can fix the budget and establish obama's legacy. the co-authors are both fcc officials. reed hundt in the clinton administration, and blair levin spent time there as the national broadband plan. gentlemen, thanks for being here. mr. hundt. your book's subtitle. how can technology fix the budget and help us over the so-called fiscal cliff. >> guest: that is the subtitle and it's a bit of a mouthful. the fundamental idea here is if you spend time in silicon valley, spend time in detroit where the automobile industry is being rebuilt. you spend time outside the beltway you see that america has the potential to generate abundance for its own citizens and for the world. you spend time only inside the beltway it looks like a zero sum game, looks like lose/lose and who is going to lose the most is the gist of the negotiations. so what we tried to say in the book, what are the lessons of the technology sector, that comes from the optimism in the tec
state to act in response to the mass shooting in newtown, connecticut, keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and banning assault weapons. president obama has in hand to the recommendations from joe biden on gun-control and will push for action. the front page of the washington journal says president obama escalates the fight on the w economy. is the debt ceiling negotiable? your thoughts? send us a tweet or post your comment on facebook. you can also send us an e-mail. president obama held his last official news conference of the first term yesterday in the east room of the white house. here's what he had to say on the debt ceiling debate. [video clip] >> republicans and congress have two choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect ransomed in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people well-being is not a leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states is not a bargaining chip. they
the government is out to pull the wool over our eyes, if you will, and mislead us to let obama take away gun rights. >> you say you've actually this death threats from some of them. >> i have received one death threat that was investigated by three separate state entities and the feds. >> when you -- it's one thing -- it's bad enough to be breevg gr the loss of your sister, but to be attacked online and have people contact you, what is that like for you? >> i'm not worried about the safety of myself or my family. i'm worried about these individuals. this is an abhorrent behavior. when you reject facts of reality and grasp to this idea that the government is out to get you, it's a slippery slope. what's next? the helicopters that fly over your house, the medevac copters, they're out to get you. these are the type of people that should not have weapons and should not have a platform to speak, but should be seeking health care. >> they say we're just asking these questions. under that ruse, you can asking anything you want, say the most heinous things and say, look, we're just asking questions.
entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. >> gretchen: but when barak obama was a senator, he said raising the debt ceiling was irresponsible. so which one is it? laura ingraham just moments away to tackle that one. >> steve: meanwhile, is he really sorry? hours after lance armstrong apparently admitted to oprah that he had doped for years, there are reports he's ready to name names of other cheaters. oh, boy. >> eric: all right. miss america's got talent. >> miss new york! [ cheers and applause ] >> eric: what the new miss america had to do before winning the crown. "fox & friends" hour three starts right now. >> gretchen: i guess the cue, they didn't get your cue. now. here we are. >> steve: welcome aboard. eric is in for brian. he's on vacation. he'll be back one of these days. good to have you. >> eric: good to be here. >> steve: before your big fife show. >> eric: i started doing this and people said no, just stay with -- weird. >> gretchen: i know when suggested that. >> eric: you do, don't you? >> gretche
in mexico and the united states in which we have a lot of hope in the government of mr. pena nieto and the government of mr. obama, that they can listen other voices on a very delicate subject to security. what are we doing, local governments facing challenges that sometimes go out of our hands and anyway we have to deal with them. there is no doubt that the main concern, for instance, in my city in northeast mexico is a border state with taxes. too often, cities have borders with the rio, texas that we also have my city on the southeast part of the state and it's a strategic location. my city the city of 670,000 people. it's a big city. the metropolitan area sharing the space which has two cities, our neighbors in another city, which is my city. there is no doubt that the main concern of the people in the border areas on the mexican side is the demand for safety and the demand for security. this demand is being heard louder and louder than the demands for employment and secret services, which is what we mayors do. when i was listening of course for job creation, economic developme
to go through the secondary step when you buy ammunition. new york is one of at least 12 states with new gun laws on the agenda as a result of all of this. bill: also a freshman lawmaker vows to stop president obama from using any sort of executive action to limit second amendment rights. republican steve stockman out of texas would defund the white house and would file articles of impeachment. he argues executive action on the issue is not only unconstitutional but a direct attack on americans. five past the hour. martha: so debt talks are also heating up now in washington as the national debt is speeding towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed.
mentioned and jackson was a man of the people. given the great deal of support that president obama had received in the 2009 inauguration, what will we expect to hear from him that might define or establish his legacy on monday? >> a very good point, residents of the united states can't campaign again, but they campaign for history. they get very conscious of their role in history, what will they be remembered for? it is interesting, the president that either did not get a second term or whose second term was considered disastrous often wind up campaigning even harder. some of our presidents have been great ex-president, working hard to establish that kind of historical legacy. i think president obama will use that opportunity to try to find what it is and how you want people to think of them not just now, but in the future. and king has just had a monument built to him. 50 years ago, 1963, king gave his speech on the steps of the lincoln memorial. there will be some connection to that in the process because this is the fulfillment of what he looked for. but what is left, what needs to
. the information included, tearing down barriers that prevent federal agencies and some states from sharing relevant records and making sure there are laws are as effective as possible comes to identifying those that should not have access to firearms. this week president obama president obama took executive action in support of these rules and at the same time, putting an end to the nonpartisan research and the cdc. and we have directed them to resume the strategy prevention. we need to respond to active shooter situations. in addition, at the president's direction, the administration is making clear that under existing laws, doctors are in no way prohibited to work with individual communities and school districts to develop plans to make our schools safe. and we will regularize access to mental health services for all who need them. let me be very clear. not one of these executive orders, contrary to what you have said, infringes upon anyone's second amendment rights or the historical use of executive power. all this is just really the beginning. in addition to these actions and proposals
